aston's superhero 5th birthday party

Monday, June 25, 2012

last friday, paula of frog prince paperie first featured aston's superhero party in her blog. that was exciting because paula's team was responsible for all the party printable designs including the invites!

our little guy just turned 5 and after a long debate who won over the party theme (spiderman vs superman), we finally decided on doing the complete superhero party in case he changes his little fickle mind again. and in the event he did so, we got every superhero covered! 


we had the big celebration at planet wow - an indoor playground place where all the kids (and adults) released all their morning energy in the bounce houses and giant slides. it was truly fun and we all had a blast! 

the day of the party i had to consider transporting all  the party decor to the venue, so i decided to use unbreakable reusable stuff we already have at home. aston's spiderman toy box organizer served as the cake stand. his standby lunchboxes (i didnt realize he had half a dozen of them) also were part of the decor and held strings for the balloons.

for the party signage, an old ikea plastic frame held an invitation placed atop a shoebox from his new superhero sneakers his grandparents gave him. i just personalized the shoebox by sticking some of his party printables on them. it was a great way of adding height to the dessert table (see first photo of this post). i also had coloring sheets printed, rolled and tied with coordinating ribbons as an inexpensive addition to the party favors. they also served as tablecenterpieces and part of the dessert table to add color and height! 

i utilized some of the printables in different ways this time. the cupcake round toppers were used as stickers for the gable boxes, crayon toppers and cookie toppers. the scrapbook paper were used as placemats for each place setting and liners for the white platters that held the cakepops. the small favor boxes were cut to use as tags for the gable boxes as well.

each guest get to take home a gable box filled with crayons, pens/pencils, masks, superhero candy and coloring sheets. they were treated with sweet desserts such as star sugar cookies, cupcakes with superhero rings, cakepops and cake. 

we are so blessed to have all our family, relatives and friends there to enjoy aston's memorable 5th birthday party! see you all next year!

Looks like it was a great time! I love all the details! (good call keeping the theme somewhat 'generic' to cover for last-minute theme changes!)
